 "To know the way, ask those coming back."

Western North Carolina Brain Tumor Support is an adult support group for brain tumor survivors, their families, and caregivers.

WNC Brain Tumor Support recognizes that individuals and families respond uniquely to the trauma that a brain tumor imposes on their lives. WNC Brain Tumor Support strives to provide educational and emotional support to assist them in their journey in  obtaining the best possible state of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

The group strives to improve the quality of life of brain tumor patients and their families through social  interaction.


Some comments from our members:

 "I love what you’re doing and the positive impact of the group offers loving togetherness; we are not alone, but helping each other to the best of our ability."

" I enjoy talking and sharing with other members."

" I am so thankful I found somebody, finally that has been through a similar situation as I have. The group has given me enough hope that you will ever know!"

" I believe that I can and will be alive to get to know my grandchildren. Thank you for giving us so much hope!"

" You are truly a testament to the power of "never getting up" and "persevering" in spite of the greatest of challenges. You give HOPE to those who start to feel defeated and it's really amazing..."

                WNC Brain Tumor Support was founded by George Plym, a 14 time brain tumor survivor.


George Plym is the president of WNC Brain Tumor Support and also on the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center Comprehensive Cancer Center Regional Advisory Board. 

The group was formed in 2001 and has grown to become known not only in North Carolina, but world known.

Since its inception, the local group has had more than 100 members,  averaging approximately 15 to 23 members for meetings and  countless members scattered through the world with its online program.
